Nicoll Curtin commits to supporting women in tech
The event had an enviable line up with key speakers from EY, Barclays Fidor bank as well as an 11yr old pythonista who spoke about how she got into coding.
The aim of the event was to build awareness of the different roles that existed in the Technology space. It provided an open environment for university students to ask questions and gain advice directly from key women in Leadership within theTech world.
#codingallowed puts diversity at the heart of how we operate at Nicoll Curtin. At the start it will be aimed at University students looking to build awareness of what a career in Tech could look like and to dispel the notion that Technology is all about coding.
James Johnson, Nicoll Curtin Group CEO said “At Nicoll Curtin our aim is to be the employer of choice for talented people regardless of their background. We feel the same needs to apply to the market we work in – it is vital that we play our part in helping increase the number of women, as well as other underrepresented groups, in the technology field.”
“&hellip.All of the panel, Simone Steel, Barclays, Radhika Chadwick, EY Sophie Guibaud, Fidor, and Charlotte Swan, Pythonista are all noted pioneers in their discipline.
But more than this, their address was by degrees humbling, informative and ultimately inspiring and will go some way to ensuring the one million technical roles required to be filled in the UK by 2020 will be done
in no so small number by women” Cian Loughnane, Head of Senior Appointments, Co-Head of Diversity.
